West Kentucky Community and Technical College’s second annual Paint Me RAD 5K Fun Run will hit the pavement on Saturday, Sept. 13.
WKCTC radiography students are hosting both a 5K run/walk and 1K run/walk to raise money for their Kettering Registry Review and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists examination fees.
During the races, participants are doused from head to toe in vibrant colors at each kilometer. The race continues at the finish line with a gigantic color festival using more colored powder to create lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations.
Last year more than 300 people were on the WKCTC campus to participate in the fun run and support the college’s radiography students. “We not only raised enough money to fund the examination fees for the 2013 class, but we also had the funds to give back to several well-deserving organizations within our community,” said David Heflin, WKCTC radiography program coordinator. “We hope to have an even bigger crowd this year to continue to build this amazing tradition.”
The 5K run/walk will be held on September 13 at 5 pm, followed immediately by the 1K run/walk. Registration for the events will begin at 3:30 pm at the Anderson Technical Building. The WKCTC campus will be closed to traffic during the event beginning at 4:30 pm.
Individuals can register for the event now. Preregistration is $25 before August 28. Registration on event day is $35. Children 12 and under are $15 per child. All preregistered participants will receive an event t-shirt.

Josh Collmenter threw seven sharp innings, Arizona scored on an unusual play in the sixth inning and the Diamondbacks completed a three-game sweep of the Cubs with a 3-2 victory on Sunday.
The only run off Collmenter (8-5) came on Anthony Rizzo's 23rd home run of the season and third of the series.
Arizona's go-ahead run scored from third base when the first baseman Rizzo caught a pop foul while tumbling into the camera well.
By rule, runners are awarded a base when a defensive player carries the ball out of play. David Peralta scored on the play to put the Diamondbacks up 2-1. Peralta also drove in two runs with a double and single.
Jake Arrieta (5-2) allowed three runs and four hits in 6 2-3 innings for the Cubs. Collmenter gave up four hits, struck out four and walked one.
Adrian Gonzalez hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning off St. Louis Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal and the Los Angeles Dodgers salvaged the finale of a three-game series with a 4-3 victory on Sunday night.
The Dodgers pulled into a virtual tie for first place with San Francisco in the NL West despite a so-so outing from Clayton Kershaw, whose run of seven straight starts allowing one or fewer runs came to an end. Yasiel Puig did not play after getting hit by a pitch on the left hand a day earlier and the Dodgers finished without Hanley Ramirez, who was taken out in the ninth — also after getting struck on the left hand.
Gonzalez leads the National League with 38 road RBIs. He missed a chance earlier, flying out with the bases loaded to end the fourth. J.P Howell (2-3) got the last out in the eighth and Kenley Jansen finished for his 28th save in 31 chances.
